Good day out with Rosemary - her first Munro. Weather was good, quite mild and cloudy on the top so no views there but we got glimpses of sunshine. Have to park near busy A9. Clear path past Hydro - don't take the first right turn, it looks like the bothy up there but it's not. Carry on until you can see the loch then turn right. Good climb up which evens out. Not too difficult. A good straightforward walk bit boggy in places, path indistinct in places, fairly featureless at the top so if the cloud comes down you can easily lose your way - take compass bearings.
